To aspiring baseball players and parents:

Welcome to the Blizzard Baseball Academy!  We are excited to provide an online Academy hub for our baseball services including our network of unique offerings, divisions and partners.  We are the largest baseball academy in Minnesota providing services to players from ages 6u-18u and even college and professional players.

Since 2003, Blizzard Baseball Academy has provided baseball knowledge through camps, small group training and individual lessons.  We started with a small, 2,000 square foot space with one instructor and have quickly grown into one of the most well-recognized baseball academies in Minnesota and the Midwest.  We have been featured on such news outlets as KSTP 5, Kare11, Channel 5 with Mike Woodley, the Upper Deck Report with Al Newman, Star Tribune and the Pioneer Press.

And while our baseball offerings have expanded through some of our other divisions such as the Minnesota Blizzard baseball teams, the Advanced Fall Baseball League (AFBL), and ScoutStop (showcases, tournaments and profiles), our intentions and goals have never changed: to provide the best baseball instruction to ALL players through way of quality instruction.  Teaching life through baseball is held in high regard in all of our programs.  Our core values since 2003 (the Big 5) which you will see repeatedly throughout the website is what we live and teach by:

  • Acceptance of Responsibility / Control what you can control - Attitude, Effort and Preparation
  • Loyalty - to your faith, family, friends and the program - don't forget where you came from and what got you there
  • Humility, Class and Body Language
  • Synergism - team chemistry; the total is greater than the sum of its parts
  • Kaizen - continuous improvements, every day, in small increments

So while players and parents start with us expecting baseball instruction, they soon realize that they are typically getting a lot more than what they paid for: a great experience where baseball is the main focus; but in an environment of positive reinforcement and core values that players need.

Whatever your skill level - beginner or advanced - there is a place in the Blizzard for you to learn the game of baseball.  We hope you enjoy our unique offerings and our long-standing reputation as having some of the best baseball instructors, teachers and mentors in the state.

See you at the Academy!
